Chris Garneau has a new album on the way. The Kind will arrive Jan. 22 via The Orchard, he confirmed today.
Along with news of his album, he is sharing a new single called "Not the Child, which is premiering today on Variance alongside a video shot near his Upstate New York home and directed by Jeremy Jacob. The clip finds the Garneau reflecting on a queer childhood through dreams and intimate home movies, as the singer dances through natural landscapes and artifice.
The video, like the song itself, is colorful and full of drama, evoking a fusion of Perfume Genius' theatrical, powerhouse performances with the playfulness and whimsy of Sufjan Stevens.
While the song is officially out on Friday, the video can be seen below.
